This project was about expanding and rebuilding the RISD architecture building. While Looking at RISD’s relation to downtown, it is our conviction that RISD is a school of design without a center to the campus where each department is scattered, but is still producing very rigorous and imaginative projects. The new site for the RISD architecture building is located right next to the existing architecture department. The location is North Main Street and Pover Street, looking right towards the river. This is a beautiful site, but it is also pushed to the side in relation to the rest of the other departments. Public space is under pressure from the popularity of the virtual. Current public realm design is an announced script, It excludes and eliminates: mystery of the urban condition, randomness, culture, surprise, and the uncertain. Ostensibly we have more choice, money, freedom, but we are limiting ourselves. Rather than an iconic imposition, the building forms new links between the public and the city, and brings new coherence to RISD’s campus. The intricate program and sensitive context of the new building generated the central questions underpinning the design: How can the building reflect the larger forces of Providence while inviting the city in? How to make a building that embodies the ambitions of RISD? How to invite the general public in to a building to whom the program is quintessentially private?

FA B R I C AT I O N

The solution is to shift three volumes as an architectural gesture symbolizing the extension of RISD’s campus: a reach from the city towards the heart of RISD’s campus. The building aims to weave together the city, the public and the campus; it is concomitantly an extension of all three. While the building steps up in section simultaneously steps up in plan, the section and plans are clear reflections of one another. The city steps up with the outdoor exhibitions spaces and the volumes with views provided to the nearby buildings, the river, and city. The shifting volumes create a 30ft high Main Hall covered by a dramatic 30 ft cantilever. The Main HAll serves as an interface to Power st, a proclaimed openness with the quality transparency to invite the public with views of work, which can be exhibited there. Strongest argument of the building remains in a city that is undertaking the next step and almost dying of generic shapes, but also does not require needless extravagance, it is beautiful in between something that has not happened before, yet it is still very polite to everything which is there.

GLASS USED IN THIS PROJECT The Site located next to the Providence Canal gets direct sunlight from the North side causing inconveniet extra heating and lack of visibility. Therefore, I chose to use Channel Glass on the exterior eliminating the direct light and to prevent the seasonal extra heating or cooling. There is an additional gap inbetween the Channel Glass and the Double Glazing Window Glass on the interior to have additional airflow and ventilation.

BLOSSOM RISD DESIGN LAB


ARCHITECTURE // ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN SPRING 2012 With the collaboration between RISD Architecture students and the Pawtucket, Rhode Island’s Chinese Christian Church, this 6-week project transformed the site into a communal park and gathering spot. As one of the first occupants of the Pawtucket River, our mission was to improve and develop a communal, public space that brings awareness to polluted river and to set precedent for future use by creating a place for exploration and a hub for education and communal relaxation. Our main purpose was to design a suitable communal site for both the children and adults that would be using this space, thus, we built a floating classroom on the river as outdoors education for children and 2 pavilions as a gathering and performance space for Chinese people.

The main pupose of this project was to create a sustainable and multifunctional housing unit system that hosts athletes visiting for Boston Olympics in 2024 as well as the City’s residents post-olympics. Boston’s already built athletic infrastrucktur with more than 25 potential and existing facilities and a capacity over 6,000 within a 5-mile-radius creates a tight, concentrated ground eliminating the concept of a single Olympic campus and expanding to make the city a focal point. Boston as a city values green space and from a bird’s eye view each neighborhood has a well-designed public park. Therefor, I have chosen Charlestown for my site that is close to the main highway - interstate 93 - that connects Boston to both North and South, giving my site an easy access as well as a potential to create a communal park that is incorporated with Architecture to an area in need. My design accomidates over 350 athletes to competitively train and live during the Olympics season by intertwining with the landscape concept of green roofs that creates a multifunctional outdoors facility as well as indoors option.

CENTRAL FALLS, RI INNOVATION DISTRICT

This project is situated in Central Falls, Rhode Island, where the city has asked RISD DESINE Lab to seek new models of urban life that can help their community move forward from the economic and social stress that has plagued them for much of the last forty years. The City seeks visionary propositions that can unleash unmet human potential, redefine urban space and landscape, and ensure environmental robustness. The focus will be on developing a strategic plan for the city, one which identifies opportunities and next steps to ignite the creative and entrepreneurial spirit of the community.


The northeast quadrant of the city is currently the most incoherent part of Central Falls. While it is held together by the historic main road Broad Street, and embraced on two sides by the Blackstone River, over the last fifty years it has gone through a process of greater industrialization, the replacement of single homes with high-density rental units, and the stripmallization of Broad Street. Where once family homes and 19th Century brick retail and offices stood, there are now vast parking lots fronting endless dollar stores, liquor shops, nail salons, car washes, auto repair shops and the now vacant vast faceless remains of the Osram Sylvania lighting plant. Between Broad street and the river is the high embankment of the railroad with its freight trains shipping their chemical loads from the coast northward to Massachusetts. The district is currently in sad state, yet it is not without opportunity and has many of the necessary ingredients for a very different future. The lighting plant, if it avoids being turned into a big box store or warehouse, has the potential to house many new start-ups needing large industrial space , and with its adjacency to the main street, the opportunity to see innovation hubs sharing maker space and incubator services with the local population. How such an area can serve both populations in exciting challenge that could be emulated nationwide in post-industrial cities with large inner-city industrial complexes. Likewise, the few remaining, historic homes could be extricated from their wrappers of auto repair shops and tire stores and reconnected to Broad street and the public amenities which are currently lost within the fabric or which could occupy currently underutilized industrial buildings, some of which ( like Hasbro’s property ) still retain great architecture value and could be easily adapted to other programs that serve the public and help create a vibrant downtown. And finally the river, which in recent years the city has been creating greater access to, but which is still underutilized by the community.


VISION & VALUES

CHALLENGE

The various proposals for the Central Falls Innovation District are all guided by a shared vision and set of values: to create a viable economic engine for the city of Central Falls that re-uses existing buildings, makes wise and sustainable use of locally sourced natural and human-made resources, local knowledge and existing skill sets, while expanding local educational and skill-building opportunities and creating an increasing number of local jobs.

To create a vision for a new zone within the city that operates as a “generato” or “engin” for the city in that it creates new jobs with more jobs spinning off of those

JOB

- that addresses both needs and opportunities of the city, region and/or nation - that wisely uses available resources (human,enviroRESOURCES mental, built) and conditions within the city

- that creates a quality of life for those who do live there and might live there

QUALITY OF LIFE

GUIDING CONCEPTS AND CONSIDERATIONS

IDENTITY

- that functions wisely and efficiently, and models new sustainable land use practices and lifestyles - that addresses recognized needs and desires of building a healthier citizentry, more public amenities, and greater opportunities for community building - that celebrates the uniqueness of the city and builds on and creates an identity for the city - that makes people want to visit (thereby adding to the economic benefit)

- economic health - industrial past

GROWTH

- that makes people (both locals and not) want to be a part of the bigger vision and invest their time, money and wisdom

- cultural heritage - community network - repurposing/recycling - inclusivity - stewardship - arts and design - imagination

The Institute of Film and Media is at the western edge of the proposed Central Falls innovation District. The Institute aims to create a community and academic partnership between URI’s Harrington School of Communication and Media, Brown University’s Multiculture and Media Department, RISD’s Department of Film and Animation and Video and Central Falls High School’s Expanded Learning Programs by teaching, learning and experimenting. The building is an old abandoned brick saw tooth factory with a roof that has a great lighting potential and 2 towers attached to it. I transformed this building into a film school for the neighborhood by renovating the roof, creating openings between the saw tooth roofs and constructing lecture halls, classrooms, a performance space, a media room, a radio station and a movie theater with café. In addition, with the goal to create a comfortable study environment for students, I transformed the existing saw tooth roof with no windows into a solar panel roof on one side and window roof on the other that illuminates the interior. The roofs of two towers attached were also renovated into green communal areas with the goal of collecting rainwater. The building’s exterior was mainly preserved with new additional openings created in certain areas to create a more welcoming entrance and an interior passage from one street to the parallel. Thus, the new building lures in people passing by to socialize and interact and creates a walkway that starts from the skate park, goes through the building and continues back into the park.

The Public Skate Park is located next to the Institute building. The reason behind the skate park name is for the kids on the block who love to bike and skate but have no space. Thus, the main goal of the park is to create a communal space for these kids and bring them together to create a much safer zone. The Park is linked to the Lucy Buffum Lovell Inn, Broad Street, Green Latino Market, the innovation hub by an off-road pedestrian and a bicycle path - a prototype for what could be a pedestrian network and a more leisurely city-wide linear park. This elongated park starts on Broad Street and moves through the film institute with a great potential for students to have classes outside as well as use it as a film set at the shooting stage. The community here is mainly people from South America who value family and strong bonds. Therefore this park is a perfect space for these families to come and enjoy a safe time together. There is an outdoor performance space as well as a little pond for the community to gather and enjoy a nice outdoor meal.

This studio is based on the premise that prolonged periods of widespread social strife result not only in physical destruction and human trauma, but often, as well, in a societal determination to move forward together to create a better future for all-one that is more inclusive, just and progressive. Cities, as economic engines and centers of local and international exchange, are at the center of such determinations and in the period of recovery can be the platform for critical re-evaluation of the urbanization process as a whole, as well as the particulars of physical planning, design and construction. This studio embraces this opportunity in a country once considered highly developed and a critical player in Asia’s rise, which is only now emerging from tumultuous decades of economic stagnation and civil strife. Following the end of its almost thirty-year civil war in 2009, Sri Lanka has become one of the fastest developing countries in Asia. Currently, only 18% of the population lives in urban areas but through new national and international economic investments in urban areas most impacted by war, and subsequently rural to urban migration, the urban-based population is expected to reach 65% by 2030. Batticaloa, the focus of this urban/architectural design studio is one of two cities targeted for urbanization on the country’s Tamil majority war and tsunami-impacted northeast coast. The long north south running barrier islands upon which Batticaloa, the district capital is situated, are bordered by the Bay of Bengal on the east and a vast lagoon system to the west, making the area highly susceptible to both inland flooding and sea-level rise. These issues are not unique to Batticaloa, or even Sri Lanka, but of the rapidly urbanizing coastlines of all Asia. What is unique is that the urbanization process is happening now and at such a rapid rate in east Sri Lanka; and, as there has been so little involvement of either the local community or planning and design professionals in the process, there is an opening for rethinking what coastal urbanization can mean here at the scale of the region, city, neighborhood, individual lot and building. The studio format involves individual work and combines: case studies of coastal urbanization processes in Asia; studies of regional scale natural, economic and social systems; propositions for coastal settlement that recognize the dynamic nature of coastal conditions; a testing of propositions at the scale of the neighborhood and individual dwelling, and a consideration of how the urbanization process creates opportunities for new types of investments, building of local capacity, and the creation of jobs.

LAGOON

Enviroment Healthy and sustainable lagoon system Society Healthy, more peaceful and equitable society, with a high level of social infrastructure City Safe; highly efficient; intact green,drainage and social infrastructure; and flexible for future development Economy More diverse and robust economy

T I M E L I N E - G ROW T H O F T H E C I T Y

BATTICALOA BASICS 70% of Sri Lanka’s urban population and 80% of its economic infrastructure networks are concentrated in coastal cities which are highly vulnerable to sea-level, flooding, salination of water resources, storm surges, cyclones and drought In the last twenty years, temperatures have increased by 0.5o Centigrade ( 32.9o Fahrenheit ) Monsoon rainfall has increased by 28% in the district over the past two decades Largest flood in past 100 years was in December 2009-January 2010, followed by steady increase in annual floods. 15% - 20% of the total population of Batticaloa District be vulnerable to sea level rise in 2040 The regional economy is largely based on agriculture ( paddy/rice ) and fishing, with coastal tourism on the rise The est. average rate of urbanization since 2010 is 3-4% per year Annual population growth rate is less than 1.2 per cent Around 60% of the population will be living in urban areas by 2020 sources: Sri Lanka Sunday Observer ( 06.06.12 ), UN-Habitat, University of Moratuwa, Government of Sri Lanka

VISION & VALUES The vision for Batticaloa to become a major hub city of Eastern Metro Region with a diversified economy based on fishing and agriculture, medicine and health, education, and tourism. The former government’s projection was for the population to reach 500,000 within 15 years - 5 times the current size. However, for the purposes of this study, and due to the vulnerable location of the urban area on costal low-lying land prone to flooding, we have anticipated a population of only 250,000 and a settlement strategy that balances dredging the elevation of lands further inland in preparation for new development. What this means is that the traditional linear settlement pattern along the coast will be re - arranged into a more concentric pattern that stretches westward away from the Bay.


P RO P O S E D TO U R I S M F O R B AT T I C A L O A


THE PLAN The city as a whole will be planned as more efficient, resilient and sustainable urban system. Settlement will be moved away from the coast and a broad coastal resilience strategy will be implemented that combines tourism with a system of landforms, plantings, and water management systems. The urban area will be reconfigured to improve drainage and overall storm water management. The Neighborhoods and individual buildings will be designed to collect and manage their own waste and water, generate their own electricity, and create a network of supportive infrastructure and open space that can be used for urban food production. Lagoons will be protected and maaged for the health of the ecosystem and to protect fish populations. And the region will be developed to support ecologically sustainable coastal, lagoon and cultural tourism.

CULTURAL PARK AND PERFORMANCE COMPLEX Once the existing Batticaloa Airport that was located on my site is moved further west to allow for growth of the city, the low-lying area immediately north to the new Batticaloa University will be reconfigured as a cultural and performance spine for the city. The spine starts in the city’s central lake with the new Museum of Eastern Arts and Culture at the tip of Puliyantivu Island. From here one crosses the bridge to Thimilatheevu and descends into a long park and water corridor that descends erratically across the landscape carving basins, platfoms, overlooks and steps. This is a landscape of performance - one that activates and articulates the performance of the peninsula’s drainage, seasonal downpours, and an overfilled lagoon system during the rainy season. Simultaneously, it is a place of human performance where daily activities of recreation within the park is coupled with theater, dance, and music held in open-air performance spaces, or in the performance complex that embraces the site of the northern side. The univercity directly to the south has a series of long classroom buildings paralleling the east-west transportation corridor. From here they overlook the park and create a high wall preventing water flow into the campus grounds. While surface run off moves in to the site from the north, filtered by dense landscape planting enroute to the broad channel, people - students, bicyclists, tourist - flow in from the south. At the western end of the channel is a docking station for the floating reaserch lab as well as a port for the fishermen and the boaters. Further west, beyond the docking station, is the small island of Mantheevu, a former leprosy colony built by the British in 1926, and more recently a Sri Lanka Military outpost during the war. In the master plan it is proposed as an ecotourist retreat and the quiet end of this cultural journey of drainage.

CONCRETE


The main pupose of this studio is to explore design with the only tool as Concrete. As a starting point I decided to solve the RISD architecture building’s lack of storage spce problem by stripping off the north side’s brick facade and innovating a reuseable multifunctional concrete wall that is made up of brick system. With the north side of the building getting most of the sunlight, I focused on directing the lights in an efficient way by shifting the concrete slabs - 6” by 4’. The multifunctional wall includes but is not limitid to storage space, seatings and desks for student use and can be adjusted for any personal preference.

ANOTHER MAIN GOAL OF MY DESIGN WAS ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY. THIS WAS ACHIEVED BY A REUSEABLE MOLDING SYSTEM THAT CAN ALLOW PIECES TO SHIFT AND CREATE VARIOUS PRODUCTS SPECIFIC TO INDIVIDUAL PREFERENCES. I DESIGNED THIS MOLDING SYSTEM LIKE A LEGO WITH 12 DIFFERENT PIECES TO ACCOMODATE ANY DESIRED SHAPE.
